Description Franklynw 2012-06-14 09:20:50 UTC
I'm unable to set any breakpoints most of the time - occasionally, I am able to set them, but most of the time not. (Version 3.1 - not in dropdown above)
Comment 1 Jeffrey Stedfast 2012-06-21 16:34:40 UTC
What about version
Comment 2 Franklynw 2012-06-25 07:31:20 UTC
I'll report back after e few days of using it. Thanks.
Comment 3 Franklynw 2012-06-25 09:38:31 UTC
No need to wait a few days - back to its old behaviour of not allowing me to set breakpoints - it also won't allow me to remove one which was set when it was working properly.

ugh :-(

Thanks for the updates, though.
Comment 5 Jeffrey Stedfast 2012-06-25 12:18:20 UTC
Do you by chance have a sample project that you can reproduce this with that you could attach here?

I'm just not able to reproduce this so far...
Comment 6 Franklynw 2012-06-26 04:53:02 UTC
Unfortunately I'm not able to send this project (not yet at any rate) due to confidentiality stuff - if I get the same on less sensitive projects I'll send one over. Thanks!

marking as NEEDINFO for now

For what it is worth I see this often. The All the breakpoint items in the 'Run' drop down menu become disabled. I will try to contribute to hunting this down.

I'm facing this issue almost constantly.

XS 4.0.8 (build 2)
Comment 10 Pierre-Andre van Leeuwen 2013-06-26 02:37:52 UTC
Same here. All the menu items wrt breakpoints are disabled. This occurs regardless of the type of project (exe/lib) or the selected build configuration and platform (iphone/iphonesimulator), or whether the app is currently running or stopped.

There is no need to create a sample project. I just created a new solution of type iPad -> Single view application. Could not set any breakpoints. Built it - no difference. Ran it on the simulator - still no breakpoints. Since I normally use Visual Studio, I don't know when this stopped working on Xamarin Studio.

I'm on XS 4.0.8 (build 2) running on OSX 10.8.4.

This has been fixed in 4.0.9 in the Beta channel
